Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Simona shouldn't be too confident with the scoreline today. She gradually improved as the match went on, but I really thought Beck would test her more than that. I'm not sure that this will be enough to trouble Errani, especially if she seems to feel pain in her ankle.

She will have to attack the Italian's serve and not get involved in too many baseline exchanges. It will be tough.

If she's breaking her every time and holds once a set we're golden

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2



She won 5 of 5 on the net .. what a goat

Simona was very good especially on return and ended it very well

she knew how to win like a champion

i think beck is a very good test before sara's match

i'm looking forward to this match and i think simona can win even if she wasn't in her complete form

Indeed . Errani's 3rd set play against Niculescu scared me a little (for the upcoming match I mean)

But if the italian plays like in the 1st set + 1/2 of the 2nd set from today , Simona could win in straight sets.

Haven't seen the match, but I'm delighted with the result. Can't wait to see her against Errani!

I wrote a more detail observation, but by the time I posted it I lost connection.
I just wanted to say that I disagree. Simona plays good tennis from 4-All in the first set, until the end. If you are in the USA and have ESPN, you can watch the Replay on ESPN3. I missed the match LIVE but just watched it.

I am very please, despite the usual problems. She is improving. I noticed a few positive changes.
I think, if her ankle holds, she has a pretty good chance of knocking out ERrani. I feel confident.

Serena is untouchable.!!! Halep is getting there.

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

I missed the match last night but well done Simona! From what I've read on the live scores threads, the 1st set was quite comical because they both seemed hell bent on redefining the first principle of winning tennis matches. The 2nd set ... well that score's good enough for me. That's what we want - even if it's not going ideally, for Simona to say "that's enough" and take control.

I thought that Annika would take no more than 4 or 5 games from Simona and I was right! You'll have to take my word for it because I didn't say it on TF, although I did say Annika wouldn't cause her much of a problem.

With Li Na gone and most/all of the remaining players not exactly tearing up trees, I think this tourney is pretty much anyone's now. Simona has as good a chance of winning it as anyone else.

Damn, I waited for this match too long. I want it to start already. I hope the ankle is fine.

Life is bigger. It's bigger. Consider this. The hint of the century. What if all these fantasies. Come flailing around. Now I've said too much. That's me in the corner. That's me in the spotlight. Losing my religion. Trying to keep up with you. And I don't know if I can do it.

Terrific first set.

So much for the theory that Simona wouldn't have the weapons to bother Errani. Wonder if Corswandt is watching?

Great stuff

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.
